Dearly Departed

Dearly Departed - Family Portrait

I missed family pics due to work. Now I’m like the son who died that nobody can get over.

Competing Visions

Competing Visions - Family Portrait

“Oh, my son was always a character. We had just recently re-located from Chicago to Florida and being a single Mom starting over, I wanted to have special “mother and son” family photos taken. I scheduled the photo shoot with a local photographer who was excellent in setting up my vision for the perfect shoot. However, it was a long vision, and Chad, the patient trooper at age 4, decided he would put in his own vision, unbeknownst to us, at the last minute. I was totally unaware until I reviewed the proofs. It is our classic moment.”

Leave The Stain, Cover My Name

Leave The Stain, Cover My Name - Family Portrait

“Back in 4th grade, I was too young to know how to do laundry. Here we are at a family outing taking. Mother had dressed me in my nice stained shirt with my name on it. But for some reason, we don’t want anyone to know who I am, so let’s cover up my name and leave the stain. Gonna have to check all my old pics now and see how many my clothes are stained. No wonder I never got any dates.”

Photoshop In The 60′s

Photoshop In The 60′s - Family Portrait

“My grandparents decided to have a family photo done many years ago when my aunt was out of town. So, 5 of the 6 children were present for the photo.  They decided to later add a photo (a bad photo) of my aunt to perfect the picture and complete the family photo.  Honestly, you can barely tell it was even altered.”

Preppie And Punk Rocker

Preppie And Punk Rocker - Family Portrait

“My brother and I are very different. I was a high school dropout and he was a top student, but we both turned out very well. I’m in the Black Flag shirt and he’s in the sweater. Mom got a coupon for free photos at the mall so she dragged us, and history was made. I consented only on the condition that I could wear whatever I wanted. Unfortunately, I also allowed my mom to blow dry my hair like that.”

Don’t Blink

Don’t Blink - Dad

“This was suggested by our photographer to not be included in our final album. ‘Nonsense,’ I said. ‘And dress it up with some sparklies for poops and giggles.’ We love it so much we are thinking of making it into a large portrait complete with a sparkly frame with little butterfly ornaments. It’s sure to *spark* some interesting conversation. And a good deal of awkwardness to boot.”
